Let me just start by saying I do not aspire to be an event planner. This weekend, my friend Bridget and I threw a baby shower for our friend Brittany, who's expecting a baby boy in just a couple of months. The shower turned out beautifully, but the amount of effort that went into creating just this small affair made me ever so thankful to be the one photographing all of the beautiful details that go into a wedding instead of creating them.
This jungle-inspired shower was held at the beautiful Loft at Union Square in High Point, and I am forever grateful to Monica for all of her help. Since I was a guest and co-hostess, I didn't get the chance to take a ton of photos, but here are just a few that I was able to catch during some down time...
We made these simple centerpieces using pastel-colored flower pots from Hobby Lobby, plants from Home Depot, chalkboard contact paper as a table runner with each guests name written at their place at the table, and a few candles thrown in.
Bridget whipped up an AMAZING coffee cake recipe and these adorable (and tasty) mini quiches. Check out her food blog here.
DIY Tissue Paper Poms courtesy of Martha Stewart... pretty easy to construct... not so simple to pull apart without tearing.
I'm pretty sure they're laughing at me trying to sprint into the photo before the self-timer goes off... I obviously didn't make it that time.
